Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4429) Misconfigured UNIX Groups Break Hadoop
Date Fri, 17 Oct 2008 10:34:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4429?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12640486#action_12640486
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4429:
----------------------------------------

One problem with doing diagnostics for configuration failures and errors in the underlying
OS/JRE is that they are hard to reliably translate. If you look for strings, your code breaks
on every OS/JRE update. If you take a guess, you end up with those windows programs that assume
that all failures are due to being out of memory, because that was a common fault. but if
it isnt the fault, it is even more misleading.

What we can do is what you have done: place the stack trace on a bugrep where it is searchable.
The next time someone gets this error and searches for it. they will find this page. So we
should add the instructions on what to do to make the error message go away.
